Truly, I was hoping that everyone would chime in and share some of their Spring favorites-mealwise!  So far terma shared her penchant for grilling, at least her husband’s!

Her share?  Hubby wrapped asparagus in bacon and grilled it.  

I decided to try a new chicken recipe using my version of adobo seasoning.  I combined garlic powder, kosher salt, applewood smoked black pepper and oregano and rubbed/marinated some chicken thighs.  

Before grilling I combined 1/2 C of mango nectar, 1/4 C of honey and 1tbsp of cholula (hot sauce).  

I let the thighs grill on one side about 5 minutes and then basted them w/ the juice mix, turned and repeated.  

They were juicy, spicy and pretty good.  Not too spicy though-my hubby gets the hiccups if it is, and he didn’t.

I served it over brown rice.  There was some remaining baste mixture left so I heated it to the safety of boiling point and served it over the chicken and rice.  

Our vegetable side that night was a very simple spinach, mushroom and tomatoe salad.  

Now, back to sharing some new ideas on what to cook this Spring-remember the season officially arrives on March 20th!

    • Carine, last night I grilled some chicken thighs with barbeque sauce and also grilled some pineapple on the side. The other night we had grilled filet mignon and I made a mushroom risotto, salad and zabaglione. We had one of our architects over so I felt the dinner should be special. It’s been chilly here and very rainy so I’m still making hearty meals. Tonight we‘re having pasta with meat sauce.

      One thing I like to do is get the raw shrimp at costco - the larger size in the bags. I combine a little veggie oil, salt, cumin and a little powdered chipotle, toss the shrimp in to lightly coat, spray a non stick skillet with PAM and cook the shrimp for just a couple of minutes on each side. Then I put then on top of a tossed green salad. That’s one of my husband’s favorite meals.

    • sounds terrific Cynthia.  My kind of dinner salad!  My husband claims I’m trying to get him addicted to cumin.  LOL  I do love it though.  ever try cumin, montreal steak seasoning and olive oil-mix with broccoli or cauliflower (or both) and roast it.  Yummm

    • That sounds delicious. My husband buys the giant containers of that Montreal steak seasoning at Costco and I never know what to do with it.

    • that’s where I get mine.  stuff is great. shake it on steaks or pork chops.  mix it w/ a little soy sauce and evoo and marinate the same or chicken in.  mix in some to meatloaf or hamburgers.
      it can get spicy-so you need to adjust for your taste.

    • A co-worker told me about baking cauliflower that has been lightly coated in olive oil then sprinkled with kosher salt, white pepper and I added some garlic Mrs. Dash.  My stepson chowed down and let me know “no cheese needed!”
